Hey dummies! These recaps are a day late because of Titanfall. Because I played Titanfall for the first time yesterday. A lot. I know the feelings toward the game have been more than a little mixed here in the Dtoid community but I for one am in love.
It's been a long time since I've gotten into a shooter, let alone a multiplayer only competitive shooter but Titanfall just offers everything I could want from such a game. You don't have to play obsessively to feel like you're actually competing with other players. You also don't immediately die every two seconds, and best of all, you have a giant ass mech to pilot!
The game just does such a great job of making you feel like a complete badass as well. There's nothing quite like running a long a wall and jumping between buildings only to jump from one, land on an enemy mech, and then hijack his shit and destroy the enemy team!
The team behind the game has also done a great job of crafting a world that feels like Halo meets COD but somehow original all at the same time. Having your commanding officer pop up on your screen to let you know that your titan will be ready soon really gets you immersed in the world.
I could go on and on but really all you need to know is that this is a fantastic shootman game that has giant punching mechs that shoot rockets. I'm going to be preordering this on my next paycheck and I'm gonna go play some more of it right now. If you are also playing feel free to shoot me an Origin invite, crackityjones205
Gather round boys and girls! School may be back in session, but you should still have a bit of time left to skirt your responsibilities and write some damn blogs!
In the true spirit of the classroom, this month’s Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “things that video games have taught you.” Whether you want to write about a specific skillset you’ve acquired, love (or hate…) for a genre, game design, music composition, edutainment games, general life lessons, or even delve into more abstract territory…. As long as you’ve learned something, even if you didn’t realize it at the time, I want to fucking hear about it!
The world is your goddamn oyster here! All you have to do is slap some words together and format the title as “Schooled: [your blog title here].” It’s that fucking easy, folks! If your blog is up to snuff, it might even get promoted to the Front Page!
Don’t hold out on me, people! I read everything over in the Cblogs. I’ll know if you’re playing hooky this month, and I will look at you with sad puppy eyes if you let me down.
